Tony Jackson Jr. Claims Second Rockabilly 45 CCSDS Triumph
Pads Point’s Advantage with $5,000 Victory at I-30 Speedway
Little Rock, Arkansas (06/15/19) – The stars and cars of the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series invaded Tracey Clay’s I-30 Speedway on Saturday night for the ninth annual Rockabilly 45.
Entering the event, Missouri’s Tony Jackson Jr. was the Midwest Sheet Metal Marked Man atop the series standings. By the time the night was over his advantage was further extended as he streaked to the $5,000 victory, which marked his second-career win in the race and his second series’ triumph of the year.
Not even a mechanical problem that forced him to a backup car slowed his roll.
“We put a new engine in this week, and something wasn’t right in hot laps. We didn’t want to risk doing any further damage, so we parked it, and thankfully my teammate and sponsor Raymond Merrill let me drive his car,” Tony Jackson Jr. said in Victory Lane after leading all 45 laps of the feature. “We had a couple of cautions early in the feature but after that we went green the rest of the way. It was tough being the leader because I didn’t know how big my lead was, so I didn’t know how hard I needed to push it in lapped traffic.
“I just kept my nose clean, and everything worked out. I want to say thanks to Raymond Merrill and all of my sponsors for making this possible.”
Tony Jackson Jr. made a clean sweep of the night’s program. He set fast time in Mark Martin Automotive Time Trials, and backed it up with a win in his heat race to earn the New Vision Graphics Pole Award for the finale. Jackson Jr. snagged the lead and led every circuit of the 45-lap finale, which was slowed by two cautions early in the going.
Jesse Stovall worked into the runner-up spot during the feature’s opening laps and crossed the line in the second position. Robert Baker came from the sixth-starting spot to finish third, while Mississippi’s Brian Rickman passed seven cars to finish fourth. Timothy Culp ran in a podium position for the first half of the race before settling into a fifth-place finish.
The COMP Cams Super Dirt Series continues the 2019 campaign on June 28-29 with the 6th Annual ARMI Freedom Classic presented by Henryetta Ford at Salina Highbanks Speedway (Pryor Creek, Oklahoma).
